Natural Family Planning Classes
Discover a natural way to postpone or achieve pregnancy…
The art of Natural Family Planning is based on an awareness of a woman’s fertility. It is medically safe, 99% effective, very low-cost, often has a positive effect on the couple’s marriage, and is morally acceptable.
The Couple to Couple League (CCL) invites engaged and married couples of all ages to learn the sympto-thermal method (STM) of Natural Family Planning (NFP) with this three-part course. This series of three classes will be held on May 12, June 9 and July 14 (Tuesdays from 6-9 p.m.) at St Joseph Catholic Church on Lapeer Road in Lake Orion. The $140 course fee (plus s & h) includes a complete set of materials and a one-year membership.
Register for this class series or search other classes available throughout the year in various metro Detroit locations at www.ccli.org. Please register online at least one week prior to class start date in order to receive your class materials. If that is not possible, contact the teaching couple for this location, Kelly & Ron Brock at 248-969-2259.
